    A long time ago I had one (from 1957) for several years. It was my first military vehicle and I loved it.

    In no particular order:
    It is very sturdy and is overengineered.
    It is rather slow, maximum speed is somewhere between 70 and 80 kilometers/hour but closer to 70 than to 80 I think.
    Therefore a different and relaxing experience on the motorway. No one to overtake.
    It doesn't offer great visibility around you.
    The windscreen can be folded down, the doors can be lifted out and the soft top can be removed, one big fun convertible!
    It is surprisingly good off-road.
    I like the looks of it (still do).
    I found the seats comfortable for what they are.
    Not many Dutch designed and built vehicles around.
    Lots of room in the back and the planks can be arranged to give a completely flat cargo bed.
    Doesn't have good fuel economy.

    Go for it!

    Hi Mick,

    Had a look and found 4 for sale here in the Netherlands.
    These two sites are good sites to keep an eye on.
